#MyURBNSummer has come to an end. I presented and demoed my summer project to a room full of interns, engineers, designers, and executives and I received a lot of great feedback.
Although I was a bit nervous it was such a great opportunity to show off my completed work. I was so proud to present the effort and hard work I put into building a component library.
The week following my presentation I felt like a true part of my team. I picked up a few tickets that were apart of my team’s development process, aka sprint, which is a short iteration of time in a continuous development cycle.
Before departing, my last project was to update the header of Anthropologie’s website which I can’t wait to add to my portfolio.
I leave my internship at URBN wanting to know more.
Having strengthened my HTML and CSS/SCSS knowledge as well as my Command-Line and GitHub skills, I am ready to dive deeper while on my own time to challenge myself.
Further, to follow through on the advice and tips my manager gave me, I also will contribute to open source projects. They are a great way to improve upon what I know while challenging me.
Back to ‘Cuse
In a few days, I am moving back to Syracuse to start my senior year. I am excited to get back to the iSchool to further some interests that I discovered this summer. I also look forward to meeting the freshman class and sharing my experiences to help them grow.
Last, I just returned from Peak 2 Peak, which is an iSchool immersion program, and my career path has completely changed. I thought I was going to be an East Coast gal, but I can’t wait to get back to the Pacific Northwest.
